Self-care for workers

If individuals, employers and organisations want to ensure healthy, safe and energetic workplaces, they will need to encourage, model and practice self-care and make it part of their risk management protocols.

  • Escalating Stress - A process which occurs when there is an imbalance between demands made on us and
    our resources to cope with them.
  • Burnout - Prolonged physical and psychological exhaustion or
  • Vicarious trauma - When a person’s world view is changed as a result of hearing or witnessing traumatic
    stories or events.
